Violence surges in Ukraine: tens of people were killed, kidnapped and tortured
Ukraine is experiencing hard times. In a country, which lived peacefully for 22 years, tens of people were killed, kidnapped and tortured. The number of victims has increased to 5 people, said doctors who saved the wounded on the Hrushevskoho Street in Kyiv, where the main conflict between protesters and police occured. Armenian Sergiy Nigoyan and Belarusian Michael Zhizdnevsky have been shot dead yesterday morning. Fifty years old candidate of physical and mathematical sciences, climber and employee of NAS Institute of Physics Yuri Verbitsky was kidnapped by unknown people in the hospital, where he received medical treatment, and tortured to death. His body was found in the Kyiv region. According to Ukrainian media reports, 15 people are still missing.
It was impossible to imagine such situation just 2 month ago. Country that was on the verge of signing association with the European Union, saluted a lot of ambassadors and politicians. But the situation in Ukraine has changed dramatically. Totalitarian machine started working. More than 30 people were arrested without a trial.
Ukrainian citizen can not count on help from the state. Citizen is killed by policeman, robbed by official and sent to jail by corrupt judge. The government has violated all human rights, the constitution and laws, while European and American media took neutral position. At the same time riots, which took place earlier in Paris and London, were placed on the front pages of popular newspapers.
In conclusion I want to give you a link to a video from ICTV channel that demonstrates awful situation in Ukraine. Rescuers сarry 2 corpses of people, who allegedly participated in Automaidan (Auto movement which strongly support protesters).
By the way, one of the organizers of Automaidan Dmitry Bulatov is missing.
